The Changing Economy of Southeast Alaska

Headwaters Economics is working with the Tongass Futures Roundtable to better understand Southeast Alaska’s economy.

Headwaters Economics created a report on the economy of Southeast Alaska, with socioeconomic details about boroughs and census areas as well as specific industries, and a slide show on economic challenges and opportunities in the region. It was jointly developed with the McDowell Group.

We hope that these documents will be a first step in the development of a shared information resource on Southeast Alaska’s economy, and that through partnerships it will grow and become an opportunity to develop solutions that work for the region and its residents.
